Teamwork Series 1: Cool Under Pressure

Over the next three weeks we will be looking at four personality types in our holiday Teamwork Series. The StatPro Holiday Stress Test will help you determine which one you are.

StatPro Holiday Stress Test

The world of asset management means that everyone has something different to bring to the table. Front office, middle office and back office teams not only need to be multi-disciplined but also have a range of mutually beneficial and compatible personalities to make sure that the thinkers can think, the doers can do and the organisers can organise!  

Without a blend of personalities, asset management firms cannot move the financial world forward in a cohesive, proactive and aligned fashion.

So what do you bring to the table? How do you see yourself and how do others see you? 

This week we look at our first personality type…

Cool as a Cucumber!

These people are invaluable in “testing” times when everyone is stressing!

When the markets crash, Cool Cucumbers are the people most able to look around and gather information in a clear and concise manner. They are unlikely to become overruled by emotion and instead focus on staying objective. They like to work methodically with an accurate system for information and data gathering that can categorize everything.

Cool Cucumbers probably dream spreadsheets and reports. They can track even the smallest of details and develop expertise in many fields; and we’re not just talking data fields.

Cool Cucumbers think before they speak and are not afraid to reserve their opinion until they have enough information to form a judgement. They like to make sense out of the chaos and want to be seen as intelligent, informed, knowledgeable and perceptive. Underneath their shield of steel they are kind-hearted and giving individuals. Cool Cucumbers are also very loyal and supportive of those they trust.

Does the Cool Cucumber persona sound like you? Take The StatPro Holiday Stress Test to find out. Plus, don’t forget to come back next week to look at the next personality profile in our Teamwork Series.
